The first song of Salman Khan’s upcoming film Race 3, is releasing tomorrow (May 18). A sneak peek of the song was unveiled on Thursday and while fans of Salman and Jacqueline Fernandez could not hold their excitement, we noticed some striking similarities between the music of Hiriye and the song I’ve Been Thinking About You by the British-American band Londonbeat.
Well, if you do not believe us, check out the sneak peek of Hiriye and the music video of I’ve Been Thinking About You right below and decided for yourselves. Although touted as the biggest Bollywood album of 2018, the music of Race 3 seems to have borrowed heavily from the ‘90s pop hit by Londonbeat.

The music of Race 3 has been composed by Salim Sulaiman. The film also features two songs with lyrics written by Salman Khan. Directed by Remo D’Souza, Race 3 stars Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala.
Speaking at the trailer launch of the film, Salman described Race 3 as a full-on action and musical bonanza. “Earlier, we used to have a ‘musical action bonanza’ which hasn’t come in a while, the kind of films Amit ji (Amitabh Bachchan), Dharam ji (Dharmendra) used to do. A film with big scale music, emotion, action, which you watch, whistle in the end, clap and go back home happy – this (Race 3) is one of those films, which I’ve never done at all,” he said.
Race 3 releases on June 15, 2018.
